Charlie est un petit coeur sur 4 pattes. approximatievent 5 ans, 8 livres, très attachant  enjoué, adore jouer avec des petits toutous. Il a besoin de dormir avec ses maîtres. … il est d’accord pour dormir au pied du lit par contre.  Il est propre à l intérieur mais fait des petits pipi si il est trop content ! !!! Il est très dépendant de ses maîtres il pleur beaucoup si il en manque un ! !! Il a un problème à la colonne et ne peux monter des marches donc il a besoin de rampe pour le lit et le sofa. S’entend bien avec presque tous les chiens qui sont gentils avec lui.  Il marche bien en laisse. Il a un problème de trachée mais surtout si il est en surplus de poids.  Pour le moment il est à un poids santé et on ne detecte pas de problème à ce niveau.  Donc son poids sera à surveiller de près. Il est très jappeux pour tout et rien, donc preferable qu ‘il ne soit pas en appartement. Il est frileux. Charlie serait un petit compagnon tres devoue. Charlie est en famille d’acceuil a Aylmer, Quebec. —-Merci de votre intérêt pour un chien du groupe Minpinerie Rescue.

Heeeeeeeeere’s Charlie! Charlie’s dedicated foster Mom only speaks French (located in Alymer) and she is meticulous with his care and knows his medical condition and temperament and needs. She is quite invested in this little dog as she is the one who rescued him from a shelter and worked out his previous adoption (he was returned because his owner became too ill to care for him, not Charlie’s fault)  and now she wants to make sure this time that his adoption is forever. So in this case, we are hoping for a Francophone adopter to communicate with her very well, or if you are an Anglophone adopter, you need to have a Francophone person communicate with Charlie’s foster Mom in French on the phone and be there physically when you pick up Charlie at time of trial adoption to go over everything (and you can take notes in English about Charlie) (after you have been approved as an adopter of course). Now about Charlie, a little sweetheart on 4 legs. Quiet and nice. About 5 years old, 8 pounds, very endearing and playful, loves to play with little doggies. He needs to sleep with his humans but agrees to sleep at the foot of the bed if necessary. Charlie is clean inside but pees if he is too excited. He is very dependent on his masters and will cry a lot for at least some time if he misses one of them, so an apartment not recommended. He cannot climb stairs so he needs a ramp for the bed and the sofa. Charlie likes a walk and walks well on a leash. Nice thick coat for winter walkies. At the moment he is at a healthy weight and we need to make sure he stays that way as a trachea problem could develop if he gains weight. Charlie would be a lovely small companion very devoted to you. —Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

Sassy – sweetheart who would love to be an only dog! Just loves to be with you!

7 YEARS OLD, ABOUT 12 POUNDS – LOVES CUDDLING AND YOUR COMPANY ABOVE ALL – SO MUCH LOVE TO GIVE – LOVES WALKS – WOULD DO WELL WITH NO OTHER DOG OR ANOTHER CALM DOG 

Dear Sassy was with Minpinerie before – she was adopted and very much loved and lived with another little dog (male chi) to whom she bonded really well, they used to curl up together at night, but the owner got quite ill and could not take care of her anymore, so she was surrendered so we could find her a home where another loving person can open their heart and their home to her. She is a puppy mill survivor, she cannot stand to be contained, so she should not be crated. She loves to be with her people. Miss Sassy is a lovely little 7 year-old MinPin. She has had a tough life, and she so much love to give and wants nothing more than to be with her human and to be snuggled and loved back. Walks are one of her favourite things to do and she is pretty good on leash. She has lots of energy and she might not come back in an off-leash situation. Sassy loves to sleep under blankets as a true Minpin does but she has also learned to enjoy curling up in a bed in front of the fireplace. Wants to have a sweater on before she goes outside to do her business, especially once it gets dark.  She has had a hernia fixed near her bladder and she is now starting to learn that she can hold her urine more easily than before and with frequent trips outside, housetraining is pretty much good again. Her foster Mom lets her outside frequently and working on learning the words “Sassy go pee”. One thing that Sassy doesn’t like is to be closed in; she has spent too many years trapped in a cage and it causes her a lot of stress. There are not many teeth left in her mouth but she does deal with a few kibble with her soft food at meal time. She has some insecurity about food, and will steal treats if she can get away with it and has a bit of food aggression, but it is easily dealt with.  Her foster Mom says “I think that Sassy could be an only dog as long as her person is with her for most of the day.  She might benefit from being with a calmer, older dog or someone her own age. She is a wonderful little dog with tons of love and laughter to provide anyone willing to finish her housetraining.”———Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog.

Watson – confident and and handsome boy

 

5 YEARS OLD – 16 PDS – PLAYFUL AND CONFIDENT – LOVES TO CUDDLE – NO OTHER DOGS – NO SMALL CHILDREN  – SMART AND ACTIVE

This sleek, regal little guy is Watson, a 16 lb 5 year-old MinPin. He’s funny, in perpetual motion, oozes confidence and enjoys brisk interactive games (fetch the ball, hide and seek). He’s energetic (Watson will sometimes tear through the house for no apparent reason), has a  prancing gait, is assertive and needs enough exercise and activities to keep him busy. He demands cuddling and often must be surgically removed from your lap. He loves comfort, burrows under any blanket and loves to snuggle deep under the covers with you at night. Watson is your typical ‘Min Pin’ – he’s territorial and makes a keen watchdog accompanied by vocal threats towards any stranger coming to the door. Small creatures (squirrels, cats, birds) are chased with determination. When left alone (he’s only been left for 4 hours, beyond that hasn’t been tested), the neighbour has reported that she can hear him bark at the children playing outside and at cats/squirrels strolling into the backyard. Outdoors, he must be kept on a leash (no recall) or in a securely-fenced area at all times. He loves to go for walks but still needs to master leash walking as he thinks he’s Master King Pin. We need a home for him with no other dogs or young children. Not sure about cats. Watson becomes dominant towards dogs, especially larger dogs. Watson is smart and very trainable, learns quickly but has a mind of his own. He is an assertive, strong-willed lap dog and will require a confident owner who can take charge, spend time with him and provide him with some training, cuddles and love. He will love you back unconditionally! ———Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

Chico – little Chi mix looking for a quiet home

    2 YEARS  – 8 PDS – LIKES TOYS –  LIKES TO SIT AND SLEEP WITH  YOU  –  NEEDS HIS BODY LANGUAGE AND SPACE RESPECTED – QUIET HOME WITH NO KIDS OR OLDER KIDS ONLY    

Little Chico is a very handsome small boy, two years old, 8 pounds, good recall, knows his name, housetrained. He likes toys and loves a walk and likes his people, especially to sit beside them or sleep with them in bed. He has some Chi in him, and is a cute little character,  a big dog in a small body, fearsome in his way and lets everyone know if  something is happening, but does not sit and yap. He likes to snuggle when he knows you. He is possessive of  his bed and needs his space respected – before he came to us at Minpinerie, he was frightened by being kept in a crate  and when he is frightened, he  growls. So he needs to be respected,  so we cannot have him with small children who would not leave him alone. He would probably be fine  in an apartment,  only alarm barking. A quiet home with respectful older children or no kids would be best. He loves to go outside,  completely housetrained, loves a  walk. Chico needs an experienced  owner  who can read his body language  and know when to leave him be and let him come to you in his own time. He loves treats  and his food  and  allows you to pick him up in a  blankie and will snuggle into the blankie…almost as  if  he  has  been hurt when picked up, but trusts that he won’t be hurt in the blankie.  Chico is reluctant to wade into the foster home pack but is starting to warm up to being with a few of them at times. So he might very well get used  to a dog friend  in time or a quiet cat for company, but Chico may relax better and prefer a quiet home with no other dogs or cats. Can you offer the right forever home for this little cutie-pie?  ——Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

Beau – sweet active boy looking for a rural home and playmate

GREAT OFF LEASH – LOVES TO CUDDLE – LOVES THE WATER – ACTIVE AND BOUNCY – NO CATS – OLDER KIDS ONLY  –  RURAL LIFE ONLY – NEEDS PLAYMATE

Beau looks shy and a bit serious in these pictures, but this gorgeous teenager has lots of loving warmth, personality, intelligence, bounce and energy. He needs an active family he can grow up with, with lots of exercise. He is very quick to learn and would likely excel at agility class. He has some Minpin looks and behaviours (smart, active, loves to snuggle under covers) but you can see he also has something else in him. Beau would do excellent with another dog to play with and is perfect for a rural setting, where he is being fostered now (he is too reactive on leash in an urban setting and is quite strong when he decides to pull. He is afraid of traffic, especially anything bigger than a car and any loud noises. And Beau has too much energy for an apartment.). Good recall, good off leash so can go for hikes and at the dog park such as Bruce Pitt! Beau loves to run. He hasn’t had much chance to do that, but it’s one of his favourite things. He would be a lovely jogging companion. He likes to run after the ball and is learning to bring it back. He is about 25 lbs and may grow a little more. Beau was surrendered to us because of illness in the family. (In late November, we sent him on trial adoption and the family loved him, but he stressed out the family cat by chasing him all the time to the extent that this family was heartbroken, but had to return Beau to us.)  He likes kids but is a little over rambunctious and can scare them by jumping up so we want a home with no kids or kids over 10. He loves to cuddle and be held, loves lots of affection. If you are looking for a charmer who can go running with you and play with you and cuddle you for many years, then Beau is the sweet mutt for you! ——Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog.

FOSTER PARENTS NEEDED

Hello! Would you like to foster a dog in need? Our rescue cannot save dogs that have been abandoned or rescued from a shelter or puppy mill unless we have foster homes with loving folk like you to help prepare dogs for their forever homes. Minpinerie is a non-profit Ottawa-based organization made up of dedicated dog-loving volunteers who rescue and foster miniature pinschers that have been surrendered by their owners, willingly released by puppy mills or breeders, or abandoned in shelters. If you have the room in your home and your heart, (or know of someone who might) please let us know by filling out the application online and help us out by giving one of these sweeties a loving temporary place to stay on their journey to their forever home. You can find out more about a dog that might fit your family and lifestyle by calling or writing to Louise at loulouonline@rogers.com or filling in the volunteer application.
